Like in real world, where 80% of the Earth surface is covered with water, the Second Life map shows also a gigantic ocean with a lot of islands and continents. The main difference is that the intersim space is in fact a vido (or a void), where nothing exists. The continents and the islands are separated by this large void. The intercontinental waters (or the intercontinental void) forms the oceans. [http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Land/ocean/qaq-p/1658893]

Nobody made a clear map of the oceans. Some names could be found at [[ContinentDetector]]. On Earth, we find the boundaries of the oceans to be continents. So, this method can also be used here. It is strange that our world has 10 years and still there is no map of the oceans and no official names.

is the ocean between the mainland continents. It is separated at East by the continent cluster formed by [[Satori]], [[Nautilus]], [[Corsica]] and [[Gaeta 1]]. In West, it ends at the shores of [[Heterocera]], [[Sansara]] and [[Jeogeot]].

=== Celebration Sea ===
+
More information can be found here:[http://www.slmaps.com/]
  
This is a subdivision of the Central Ocean. It is East to [[Heterocera]] and has almost the surface of Heterocera. Usually, there are no islands in that area. The Celebration Sea is used for party and celebrations and the sims created there are deleted after the party. It usually has no private islands. This sea was the place for the SL 10th birthday party in 2013.

=== Gaeta Sea ===
+
Since there are not many suggestions for ocean names, I decided to name them myself. If anybody has a better suggestion, is free to help and improve. Also if the Linden officials son't agree with these names, they are free to delete this article. As far as Octomber 22th, 2013, people suggested me to change some names. and make the naming system more simple. The grid itself changed shape.
  
The sims between [[Gaeta 1]] and [[Gaeta 5]] form a single sea. This sea can be included to the Central Ocean more easily then to Eastern Ocean. It has a big density of sims.
+
As required from some residents, the new oceanic borders are much more visible and use larger continents as borders. Also, smaller strucures are included into larger ones.
  
=== Eastern Ocean ===
+
Major oceans are:
  
This ocean is East to [[Gaeta 5]] and [[Blake Sea]]. It is not as large as the oceans in West or North and it always was not very large. This ocean has 3 large groups of islands. The waters near Gaeta continents host no sims. Even if the great project about the large Gaeta continent is abandoned, the area remains unused.
+
[[Central Ocean]]
  
=== Remote Eastern Sea ===
+
[[Eastern Ocean]]
  
This is the most Eastern group of islands. They form an isolated group and can be included into the Eastern Ocean. They are listed separately because of their isolation. However, these islands are not as far as [[Zindra]]. This adult continent is twice as far from grid center (Sansara) them the Remote Eastern Sea.
+
[[Far North Ocean]]
  
=== Sharp Islands ===
+
[[Far West Ocean]]
  
They are a small group of islands in the Eastern Ocean. They are all what is left from the old Second Life Teen Grid private islands. Their number has decreased to about a third since the teen grid was united with the main grid.
+
[[Little Northern Ocean]]
  
=== Estate Sea ===
+
[[Little Pacific Ocean]]
  
This sea is between [[Sansara]] and [[Jeogeot]] and expands to West, to include the private [[Estate Continent]]. Majority of the sims close to the continent belong to the estates on the continent. Also, the Estate Sea has some large islands, made with up to 15 sims; some of them are not opend to public access.
+
[[Northern Ocean]]
  
=== Little Pacific Ocean ===
+
[[North - West Ocean]]
  
The name was suggested for this ocean by some residents who own land on some islands with beautiful oceanic beaches that look like the islands of Polinesia. This ocean has the following limits: mainland continents [[Heterocera]] and [[Sansara]] and private [[Estate Continent]] in East, while in West the boundaries are less clear marked by the small private continents [[Caledon - Winterfel]], [[Fairchang]] and [[Uhre Continent]]. The density of islands seem to be higher in North then in south.
+
[[Southern Ocean]]
  
=== Far North Ocean ===
+
[[Western Ocean]]
  
This is a vast ocean, with many sims included. It covers a large part of the grid. Islands are more and more rare in North and more frequent in South. Its boundaries are marked by small private continents, like [[Eden]], [[Europe Continent]] and [[Wild West]].

The following maps were created in August 2013. Some of them are outdated. Please, use the links above to get updated maps (Octomber 2013) for every ocean.
  
The Northern Oceanis a place souther then the Far North Ocean. Its boundaries are as follow: In South, it expands to the mainland continents of [[Gaeta 1]], [[Heterocera]] and the private continents of [[Caledon - Winterfel]] and [[Irish - Bonaire]]. To South, the limit is marked by [[Eden]] and [[Europe Continent]]. It doesn't expand so much to West like the Far North Ocean.

This little sea includes only two of islands. They are the most southern sims on the grid. One group is formed by 4 sims and hosts the premium railway and the other is also made of 4 sims and hosts the premium snowlands. All these islands have access only for premium residents. Their position is South to Premium South 3 continent (see [[Premium Continents]] for more information).
+
Older maps showed another sea in South-East, much longer and at a larger distance then the actual Remote South-East Sea. It no longer exists. Also, some private islands existed in the waters around [[Zindra]]. This process happen probably not just twice and will also happen in future. The Gridsurvey [http://www.gridsurvey.com/] shows that in september 1st 2013, the grid has 26830 regions (sims) active. 75141 sims existed from the birth of Second Life until that date, with a historical maximum of about 34000.

=== Remote South East Sea ===
+
Main article: [[Void Ocean]]
  
This is a compact group of sims, separated from any other ocean or sea by the intersea void. They can hardly be included in the Eastern Ocean.
+
The space beyond the most remote sims to the border of the grid forms the void ocean. Dimensions are unknown, but it could be about as wide as the populated part of the grid.
  
=== Remote South West Sea ===
+
Grid positon of a sim can be easy deduced with [[llGetRegionCorner]] function, These coordinates are used by Gridsurvey [http://www.gridsurvey.com]. The Da Boom sim in Sansara has the coordinates 1000/1000. First coordinates are for longitude, second for latitude. The most Eastern sims have coordinates starting with 500, the most southern (Premium Sea) with 500, the moth Northern (Remote North Ocean) end up to 1500, while the most Western land (Zindra) has coordinates up to 1800. Suppose the South-East corner of the Void Ocean is at 0/0, the North-West corner should be at 2000/2000 to form a perfect square.
  
The sea could hardly be included in the Western Ocean. The sims here are usually owned by institutions like the american Cancer Society. Not all the sims are for public access. Part of these sims could be owned by tutorial estates and could be available only for teen residents (see [[Teens in SecondLife]] for more info). This sea hosted a continent without public access (see [[List Of Continents]] for info). In late July 2013, this continent vanished from the grid.

Every sim has coordinates. You can get coordinates in 3 ways: with the help of a script, with a tool from marketplace or from Gridsurvey. A script uses the functions [[llGetRegionCorner]] or [[llRequestSimulatorData]] (the first function is more simple). Tools are in different models and from different merchants. At Gridsurvey, follow this link [http://www.gridsurvey.com] and type the name of the sim you want. Anyway, since every sim has coordinates, it's easy to find coordinates for continents and oceans (like in real world). The following coordinates are for each sea and ocean described above. The numbers are : ''longitude (min - max) / latitude (min - max)''. Unlike continents, oceans are a lot much larger and their boundaries are not well defined. So, if a sim is at te border of two oceans, it might appear in both. If you like Math, you can compare these numbers with the numbers from [[List Of Continents]] (see the links for each continent) and find out how big the oceans really are.
  
It is placed South from the private continents [[Irish - Bonaire]] and [[Uhre Continent]]. To East, the border is marked by the [[Fairchang]] continent. The borders of this ocean are not well defined, since the continents around it are not big.

Oceans, oct 2013, click for large

Like in real world, where 80% of the Earth surface is covered with water, the Second Life map shows also a gigantic ocean with a lot of islands and continents. The main difference is that the intersim space is in fact a vido (or a void), where nothing exists. The continents and the islands are separated by this large void. The intercontinental waters (or the intercontinental void) forms the oceans. [1]

Oceans are composed of microcontinents (see Microcontinent), sim clusters (see Sim Cluster), sim groups (see Sim Group), sims that cannot be grouped (see Unassociated Sims) and remote sims. You can find more about them at the List Of Microcontinents And Sim Clusters. A Grid Sector is a sector of the map.

The lack of names

Nobody made a clear map of the oceans. Some names could be found at ContinentDetector. On Earth, we find the boundaries of the oceans to be continents. So, this method can also be used here. It is strange that our world has 10 years and still there is no map of the oceans and no official names.

There could be some reasons for that. A comparation of the grid map shows that every year its shape is different. Every day 100 sims are changed [2] in various ways: new sims are created, sims are deleted, change their name or their position. Even entire private continents are formed or deleted from time to time. Allready, from August to Octomber 2013, new sims appeared in places where there was nothing.

Map in 2009

Older maps show that entire groups of islands are created and deleted from time to time. The map in the up-right corner of this article is made in august 30th, 2013. It can be compared with these maps below:

Name suggestions

Since there are not many suggestions for ocean names, I decided to name them myself. If anybody has a better suggestion, is free to help and improve. Also if the Linden officials son't agree with these names, they are free to delete this article. As far as Octomber 22th, 2013, people suggested me to change some names. and make the naming system more simple. The grid itself changed shape.

As required from some residents, the new oceanic borders are much more visible and use larger continents as borders. Also, smaller strucures are included into larger ones.

Major oceans are:

Central Ocean

Eastern Ocean

Far North Ocean

Far West Ocean

Little Northern Ocean

Little Pacific Ocean

Northern Ocean

North - West Ocean

Southern Ocean

Western Ocean

Maps And Pictures

The following maps were created in August 2013. Some of them are outdated. Please, use the links above to get updated maps (Octomber 2013) for every ocean.

Vanished Seas

Remote SE Sea, vanished, reapeared

Older maps showed another sea in South-East, much longer and at a larger distance then the actual Remote South-East Sea. It no longer exists. Also, some private islands existed in the waters around Zindra. This process happen probably not just twice and will also happen in future. The Gridsurvey [12] shows that in september 1st 2013, the grid has 26830 regions (sims) active. 75141 sims existed from the birth of Second Life until that date, with a historical maximum of about 34000.

Remote South East Sea vanished somewhere in September 2013. Incredible, but in February 2014, it came back to life.

Void Ocean

Main article: Void Ocean

The space beyond the most remote sims to the border of the grid forms the void ocean. Dimensions are unknown, but it could be about as wide as the populated part of the grid.

Grid positon of a sim can be easy deduced with llGetRegionCorner function, These coordinates are used by Gridsurvey [13]. The Da Boom sim in Sansara has the coordinates 1000/1000. First coordinates are for longitude, second for latitude. The most Eastern sims have coordinates starting with 500, the most southern (Premium Sea) with 500, the moth Northern (Remote North Ocean) end up to 1500, while the most Western land (Zindra) has coordinates up to 1800. Suppose the South-East corner of the Void Ocean is at 0/0, the North-West corner should be at 2000/2000 to form a perfect square.

Coordinates

Every sim has coordinates. You can get coordinates in 3 ways: with the help of a script, with a tool from marketplace or from Gridsurvey. A script uses the functions llGetRegionCorner or llRequestSimulatorData (the first function is more simple). Tools are in different models and from different merchants. At Gridsurvey, follow this link [14] and type the name of the sim you want. Anyway, since every sim has coordinates, it's easy to find coordinates for continents and oceans (like in real world). The following coordinates are for each sea and ocean described above. The numbers are : longitude (min - max) / latitude (min - max). Unlike continents, oceans are a lot much larger and their boundaries are not well defined. So, if a sim is at te border of two oceans, it might appear in both. If you like Math, you can compare these numbers with the numbers from List Of Continents (see the links for each continent) and find out how big the oceans really are.
